Lieu-dit Le Pin 2016
Pale gold hue with greenish tints. Fine, elegant bubbles.
Expressive and complex nose with hints of yellow fleshed fruit and delicate spices. On a second nose the wine
opens with a lightly toasted aroma and touches of praline and lime blossom finely lemon.
Broad on entry to the palate with a lovely creamy mousse. Chiselled and savoury on the mid-palate. Lovely persistence with delicately smoky and spicy notes.
